PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — The Latest on the anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (all times local):

8:45 a.m.

On the first anniversary of the massacre at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, many students arrived on campus wearing headphones and the burgundy #MSDStrong t-shirts that have become an emblem of the tragedy.

Outside the Parkland school, angel stakes for each of the 17 victims border the school's landscaped sign. Fourteen-year-old freshman Nathan Habte said he wanted to attend school Thursday to show support and participate in activities.

Classes were almost over last Valentine's Day when authorities say a 19-year-old former student arrived on campus and began shooting. The rampage left 14 students and three school staffers dead.

Jogger Kara Cannizzaro stopped Thursday morning to pray at the memorial outside the school. She says "every single person of the community has been affected by this."

12:20 a.m.

The communities and families terrorized by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre will spend the anniversary quietly remembering the 14 students and three staff members who lost their lives.

Victims' families say they will mourn out of the public eye Thursday. Stoneman Douglas students will serve breakfast to first responders, and will be dismissed nearly three hours before the time the shooting began, about 2:20 p.m.

A ceremony honoring the victims will be held in a park near the school where students will also pack meals for needy children. A nondenominational, temporary temple will open in neighboring Coral Springs, where half the school's students live.

Visitors will be allowed to mourn and leave mementos at the temple. The sanctuary will remain open until May, when it will be burned in a purification ceremony.
